  • Is Tupperware Brands The Perfect Dividend Growth Stock For Retirement Portfolios? [View article]
    In 1971 I had a small turnout of family for a Tupperware party who were just glad to get out of the house. The dealer told me if I got any additional orders in a specified time period I could add it for credit.
    I took a few Tupperware booklets to the beach where my daughter was taking swimming lessons. Many other young mothers I knew were watching their children, but none of them had time or desire to come to a "party". When I told them I'd had the party, but they could still order if there was anything they wanted. My "Non-Tupperware (No-Pressure) Party" resulted in my most successful sales. I qualified for the radio I desired :D
    I'm still using all my Tupperware for those years. Some I initially bought for the children's ease ended up used for camping and living aboard a boat.

    If I could have self administered my own tests surely I could have graduated Magna Cum somethin' or other.

  • The Galaxy S IV shows the contrast between Apple's (AAPL) minimalist approach to smartphones and Samsung's (SSNLF.PK) "maximalist" approach, writes Forbes' Anthony Wing Kosner. Whereas Apple carefully weighs the impact of product changes and lets the iPhone speak for itself, Samsung is constantly making big upgrades while promising its phones will change your life. Kosner thinks Apple's low-key approach resonates better in the U.S., but TechCrunch's John Biggs argues Samsung's approach has its strengths. "[Samsung] figured out that people didn’t care about specs. Instead, they care about use cases." [View news story]
    I might have been glad if mine had been an aerial view. Mine was taken directly at my home which at the time had the garage door open showing my vehicle, license plate and all I have stored in the garage. Not an attractive site nor was I happy to see my personal goods on display for all the world to see!

  • Something That Amazon Did Well [View article]
    I thought Amazon never released the number of how many units were sold. If that is correct, your whole basis for this article is one that is made up.
